    Not sure where to post this, but I was curious to get the community’s thoughts on when having a Ferrari would be good for your work/job (aside from auto-related jobs). Lots of of discussions about fcar owners “hiding” their cars from work colleagues, but I haven’t seen any posts talking about the work benefits (if any).

    How to answer this....like so many things...it depends. Which one?

    My co-workers (for the most part) know about my 348. I don't take it to work, though.

    If you're an employee and have one, then your peers (and possibly your bosses) will have one view.

    If you're the owner/boss, the perception might not be so bad as long as the ship isn't sinking when you buy it. How do you see yourself portrayed with it? Are you flaunting it? It's difficult to be thought of as humble with it, probably part of the reason guys "hide" them, as you say.

    It's luxury, it's reward, it's luck...what will you do with your good fortune?

    I think most have mentioned your points. It’s almost like having an f car is frowned upon at work. But there must be an example where is actually came in handy...

    I use it for meetings and it goes down very well but, I don't let the guys that work for me see it or they ask for higher wages and more cash, they see my Porsches and always ask for more every few months, I can't hide the Porsches as they are my run around every day cars

    I had mine for a couple years before I really allowed most of my coworkers to know I had it...maybe a bit of a different situation, because just about all of us have "project" cars, and we're all wrenchers, so it was pretty much assumed that I bought it and fixed it up, rather than made a bunch of money and rewarded myself...

    ...but "good" for work? I can't think of any benefit other than getting a good parking spot in front of the italian restaurant. I guess if you worked at Olive Garden, they can give you a few bucks for promotions...

    I drove all my Ferraris and Porsches to work. I bought them for me, not anyone else. People don't like it, well tough ****
